Give bereavement leave to an employee

If an employee needs bereavement leave, you'll need to add it to their payslip during a pay run so that they're paid correctly and the leave can accrue.

Before you start

Make sure you've added bereavement leave as a pay item to your organisation.

  3. Click the Leave tab.

    You can edit non-accruing leave in the employee's payslip.
  7. Enter the employee's leave balance as at the opening balances date (conversion date) in hours. This is usually 0, unless they had a balance at conversion.
